Register now for anti-racism and allyship virtual training series

Human Resources Services and the Equity and Inclusion Office present McMaster’s Anti-Racism and Allyship Training Series.

These 90-minute virtual sessions are led by subject-matter experts from McMaster, with the goal of increasing understanding and dialogue around some sensitive and very important topics.

The sessions will include an overview of key concepts including human rights, anti-racism, and unconscious bias, followed by discussions focused on allyship.

These informal sessions are open to the entire McMaster community at no cost.

“Our McMaster community is built on the strengths of our relationships – and people are missing the opportunity to connect right now – so these sessions on such critical topics are more important than ever,” says Wanda McKenna, assistant vice-president and chief human resources officer.

This training series is part of our collective efforts towards creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive community.

Topics are timely and relevant to the campus community and expected to fill up quickly.

Upcoming topics include:

  • What is Black Lives Matter? –  Nov. 19,  9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
  • How can we help? Human Rights, Discrimination & Harassment Resources- Nov. 26, 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
